tear gassed protesters in cairo's tahrir square. angry demonstrators packed the square today denouncing egyptian president mohamed morsi as a dictator and accusing him of a power grab. cnn's reza sayah is in cairo. reza, what's it look like now? >> reporter: joe, it is 11:00 p.m. cairo time. these demonstrators started gathering around in tahrir square about 1:00 p.m. local time. that means they've been going strong for about ten hours. many thought maybe egyptians were worn out, tired of demonstrating after the 2011 revolution, but if you look at tahrir square today, if you look at cairo today, it doesn't seem like it. the demonstrations are continuing. so are clashes. about an hour and a half ago clashes taking place right where we are behind us at the hotel we're staying at. security forces clashing with protesters. a number of protesters ambushed a police vehicle carrying riot police. the police took off. the protesters got ahold of this truck, set it on fire. more security forces came in, shot tear gas and disbursed the protesters. we've seen similar clashes throughout the day. all
in this process. i will carry this message to cairo tomorrow. i will also be consulting with president abas in ramala. let me also say to echo the prime minister, i'm very pleased that the iron dome defense system is performing so well. our partnership in support of this system represents america's enduring commitment to the safety and security of the israeli people and to israel's right to defend itself. but no defense is perfect. and our hearts break for the loss of every civilian israeli and palestinian and for all those who have been wounded or who are living in fear and danger. i know today was a difficult day. and i offer my deepest condolences to the loved ones of those who were lost and injured. in the end there is no substitute for security and for a just and lasting peace. and the current crisis certainly focuses us on the urgency of this broader goal. so in the days ahead the united states will work with our partners here in israel and across the region toward an outcome that bolsters security for the people of israel, improves conditions for the people of gaza and moves toward a
of that video in cairo and elsewhere. >> usually they do put the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. out before the big general assembly meetings which were about to begin. >> reporter: great point. >> that's probably one of the reasons they selected her as well. that's at least what i've been told by insiders. dana, thanks very much. >>> we're now only 35 days away from the so-called fiscal cliff. deep cuts in federal spending coupled with sharp tax increases by law they take effect automatically and many experts fear will throw the u.s. economy back into a recession. both congress and the white house are trying to make a deficit reduction deal to avoid the financial chaos. and president obama's reverting to some campaign mode right now to try to make sure things are done his way. our white house correspondent dan lothian is joining us now with new information. what are you learning, dan? >> reporter: well, wolf, while senior members of the administration including secretary geithner, chief of staff jack lou also top advisor meeting with -- the president himself trying to sell his vision to the public
-- that anti-islamic video that sparked the riots in cairo. that's the confusion, that film or a terrorist attack? they got 20 intelligence reports blaming the film riot in cairo. but, this is critical, those reports were disproved over time. but disproved after petraeus made his initial presentation to congress. so david petraeus believes there's a lot of confusion and a lot of misrepresentation of what he originally told congress when he briefed them initially after the attacks. he wants to go up there tomorrow, sort it all out. he will also say he had his own talking points separate from u.n. ambassador susan rice. that came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking point. so he wants to get all this sorted out. he believes it was the al qaeda sympathizer group ansar al sharia that was responsible for the attacks. >> so the question, barbara, is he is convinced that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi had nothing, nothing to do with that anti-muslim video that'd been posted on youtube, that this was a terrorist attack by this al qaeda affiliated organiz
in cairo, that's where the cease-fire discussions are taking place. and he said that hamas is not calling for any ground war or escalation, but despite the fact that hamas over the last year has fired more than 700 rockets into israel, he said israel is the aggressor in this conflict. listen to what he said. >> we will not accept any -- they are the ones who attack. a cease-fire will cure when our demands are met. >> just what are those demands? two key points that the hamas wants to make. they want an end to what they described as targeted assassinations and also want an end to the israeli blockade of gaza. shepard, in another late-breaking development, we are just getting word now that the israeli military striking in gaza a short time ago hit a bank with ties to hamas. so, the blood shed does continue. shepard? >> shepard: david lee, any indication that the diplomatic effort is making any difference? >> not very much on the ground. not far from where i'm standing, in fact, there are troops and tanks who are poised to move into gaza. how much of this is leverage at the negotiating table
it was a spontaneous response to anti-american protests in cairo and not a coordinated attack. >>> congress returns today with an agenda dominated to avoid the so called fiscal cliff, the combination of tax expense increases and spending cuts. president obama meets with top ceos tomorrow to discuss the issue. on friday, mr. obama meets with congressional leaders. >>> new york governor andrew cuomo is asking the federal government for $30 billion in aid to help his state rebuild following hurricane sandy. two weeks after the storm, tens of thousands of customers remain without power in the hardest hit sections of new york and new jersey. some 55,000 of them on long island. cuomo says the long island power company was not prepared and failed to communicate. >> i'm going to do a thorough review/investigation and a very serious one, and they will be held accountable. for past performance. and then we also have to get smart about this, and we have to make sure that we're prepared for when this happens again. >> this morning, gas rationing in new jersey ends, but remains in effect for new york city and s
hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations of our facility in cairo. >> i don't trust her. and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> a visibly angry president obama fired back at both senators and defending his ambassador. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to p go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and it's outrageous. >> but mccain decided not to let the president have the last word and raced to the senate floor to respond. >> if the president thinks we are picking on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. we're not picking on anybody. >> reporter: the president did make some news on the fiscal cliff, matt, while he made an emphatic case for raising taxes on the most wealthy. he said he wasn't drawing a red line on the idea they knew tax rates had to go back
and cairo. issues leading the east asia summit that president obama is an app. the death toll in the gaza strip surpassed 100 on monday. with evidence that an egyptian a truce is in the side. ben rose, the deputy national security adviser for strategic administration at the white house says clinton and obama have been talking about this threat to the trip. -- throughout the trip. they discussed the way forward. they concluded the best way to the dance discussions with leaders is for secretary clinton to take this trip beginning with our close partner, israel. and clinton's middle east talks do not include hamas leaders. they say the secretary will not meet with hamas, that states does not recognize diplomatically. clinton cut short her stay at the east asia summit to take this trip. headline in the "baltimore sun" -- middle east conflict puts the united states in a bind. israel risks other goals across the region. by all accounts, the damage to united states influence in the area is likely to grow if israel sends ground troops into gauze and, as it is threaded to do to stop hamas from fir
that suggest that the video was the genesis of it. i know what was happening in cairo, they were concerned about that. but what is crystal clear is that immediately, they knew because they said they testified in the hearing we had before the election, that there they were witnessing this in real time and all of those indications were that this was a very orchestrated, very sophisticated attack on the compound that went on for hours and hours and hours. this was not a mob gone wild. there was not a video sparking this spontaneously. >> congressman, you've had your own hearings with darrell issa and there have been complaints from the democratic ranking members that they were not involved in either the witness lists or the briefings by the witnesses or questioning leading into it. what do you think of senator mccain and senator graham who are calling for a select committee which would be perhaps a joint committee, house and senate, bipartisan, to have one group like a watergate panel or an iran-contra panel to look into benghazi? >> the first part of your question i would beg to differ. the
. morsi's looking at the extremists, the people who were in the streets rioting over that video in cairo. and in gaza, there are extreme elements, sending the rockets across and there was -- you know, i was not optimistic. you can't be optimistic but there were negotiations going on between hamas and israel. through kind of third parties and then israel killed the guy who was doing the negotiations for hamas. hamas has to decide whether it wants to be with extremists or whether it wants to be with the other muslim brotherhood organizations in the region. >>> i want to turn back to the debates here at home. more fallout from the elections. matt, you wrote an interesting piece this week talking about the myths of the election of 2012. you wanted to take on, this wasn't about the brilliant tactics of the obama campaign, whether it was the early advertising their ground game, it wasn't a real choice election. this was a referendum of president obama that he won. >> if the republicans take away the wrong lessons from this they're going to repeat this and fail again in the next presidential el
months of stalemate, signs of real change and movement on the ground. >> thank you and now to cairo, where president morsi's move to fast track a new constitution is being met with resistance. some say it's a way to diffuse anger to expand his presidential powers and weaken the judiciary, but critics say he's hijacking the constitution. >> erin, today, a special panel voted to approve a draft of e gipsa's new constitution. egyptians will vote yes or not despite objections by factions who say the process was pushed through by islamists who tried to squeeze out the moderates. in a rejected claims that he was being a dictator. >> translator: there is no room to speak of dictatorship. as an egyptian, i have suffered a lot of the lack of democracy, absence of democracy and dictatorship and corruption in my land, and this dictatorship you are talking about does not exist. >> reporter: the president says if egyptians do not like the constitution, they can vote no on the nationwide referendum. we'll see if that calms down his critics. erin? >>> now our fifth story "outfront" 80 days since t
change and movement on the ground. erin? >> thank you, nick. >>> now to cairo, where president morsi's move to fast track the new constitution is being met with resistance. some say it's a way to defuse anger over morsi's decree to expand his presidential powers and weaken the judiciary but critics say he's hijacking the constitution. october 4th because of security concerns. they say they weren't going to put agents in harm's way, they were worried. cnn as you know went to the compound before, found the ambassador's journal. by the time the fbi got there, would all the evidence have been compromised or -- >> sure. i mean, in an arson when a building burns down, it's a crime that consumes its own evidence. what the fbi needs to break a case like this is an informant. many informants. but in the old days they would put a wanted poster up in a post office. you can put it on the internet now. what will break a case like this is money. they can't put a suitcase full of cash on the table. cia could do that. >> and we would assume the cia is doing that, right? obviously as we all now are a
went out and gave important speeches at oslo and cairo and yet four years later, opinion of america have improved herein they are, but certainly not to the degree that i think a lot of people, including people in the administration expected them to in this period of time. if you look at the hugh global attitudes index, the most recent one opinion of the united states is in negative territory for every country they serve and the middle east. also china and in the eye. about the only thing the rest of the world likes about america are movie, tv, science and technology. they're not too keen on democracy as america preaches to. so heading now into another four years of the obama administration, where are we and why are we here? how to get somewhere else? how do we live up to that promise? what went wrong -- what's going right in what can we do about it going forward? >> simple. first of all, i don't thing that the favorability ratings -- there we go. so i don't think favorability rating in the pew surveys are evidence of whether were doing something wrong or right and i think it's a hug

obama has tried to do and in his famous speech in cairo is that he wants to deal with these countries and talk to the electorate. now we have an entirely different landscape, but in egypt, libya, and tunisia. relationship with these countries, these are countries with democratic governments. some of them have chosen paths that are a little more moderate, some leaning a little bit more to the fundamentalist side, but they're still fundamentally democratic and that will be a big challenge for the obama administration. host: its next for egypt? -- what is next for egypt? ?uest: in terms of ta host: the obama administration. guest: they still need to establish some of the legitimate government there. after the incredibly uplifting movements in it to rear square, it has devolved into a long protracted -- tahrir square, it has devloved. there is still no clear internal structure. it is enforcing the new governing structure and egypt has not really begun to speak out. this is a populous and important nation. there really have not since, since mubarak left office. the administration is workin
